3 big reasons why your business website needs an SSL certificate
Historically, the only websites that needed an SSL security certificate were eCommerce sites or those with a login facility.
Today, things are different. In this short video, Jeremy Flight, Technical Director at Rubiqa, explains the purpose of a security certificate and highlights three reasons why modern business websites need one:
Browsers alert visitors that your site isn’t secure by showing a “Not secure” warning at the top of the screen, which might panic visitors into leaving your site
GDPR legislation in the UK means that personal data should be processed securely. Business websites with anything from a simple enquiry form to an eCommerce checkout need a security certificate
Google likes security certificates, so adding one to your site will give your search engine ranking an immediate boost
